Welcome to Audra Hoyt's 7th Grade Language Arts and History
Hi! My name is Audra Hoyt and I am excited to be teaching 7 th grade History and Language Arts. This year in History we will become detectives as we uncover the mysteries of the Medieval and early modern world. Using primary sources, we will cite evidence in our historical interpretations. Through hands-on projects, simulations, discussions, and debates we will explain the rise and fall of world empires, the spread of world religions, and the increased interconnectedness of peoples and technology. In Language Arts we will express our thoughts verbally and in writing as we respond to literature, poetry, and short stories. We will conduct research in order to write essays, both factual and opinion based. Through the continued practice of the conventions of writing and vocabulary, you will become excellent authors.
A little about me…
I was born in Alaska but grew up in Chico, CA. I earned my BA in History from Chico State and then my Master’s Degree in Applied Historical Research from Boise State (go BSU Broncos!). I have a Clear CA Teaching Credential in Social Science with a supplement in English. This will be my ninth year of teaching but my first at NCSA. I just moved from Redding and am looking forward to the cooler weather. When I’m not planning lessons, I enjoy hiking, camping, and reading. I look forward to meeting you all!
